Former Champion Says WWE Likes To Pretend They Don’t Exist

Former Champion Says WWE Likes To Pretend They Don’t Exist WWE

Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella has now reacted to the WWE Network labeling Alexa Bliss as the first Ms Money in the Bank.

A fan has taken to Twitter to point out that on the ‘Most Money Moments’ episode of WWE This Is Awesome, Alexa Bliss is credited as the first women’s Money in the Bank winner with one of the timeline chapters named ‘The Goddess wins the first Women’s MITB match’.

This is not true. While Alexa Bliss won the briefcase in 2018, Carmella won the inaugural women’s Money in the Bank match in 2017.

Carmella has now reacted to this error, writing:

They like to pretend I don’t exist 🤣

The WWE This Is Awesome chapter name has since been changed to ‘Alexa Bliss cashes in at an opportune moment’.

While Bliss wasn’t the first ever Ms Money in the Bank, she was the first person to cash her contract in on the same night she won it, interfering in the Ronda Rousey vs Nia Jax Raw Women’s Title match before defeating Jax for the gold.

There was some controversy surrounding Carmella’s Money in the Bank victory in 2017, with James Ellsworth actually being the first person to unhook the briefcase in the women’s match.

Carmella was stripped of the briefcase, but won it back when the match was redone on WWE TV.

‘Mella ultimately cashed in on, and defeated Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, but not before holding her briefcase for 287 days.

This was longer than any other Money in the Bank winner in WWE history.

Carmella is currently out of action, after announcing her pregnancy in May.
